Impressive ship, indeed.

Question though - why does the USCG need to conduct operations from "South America to the Bering Sea"?


Seems pretty far from your coast...

Wouldn't it be nice to have some Boondock Saints kicking around?

Because in times of crisis the Coasties get moved over to the Dept of the Navy and get deployed around the world.

They conduct counter narcotic operations in South America. They also conduct some port protection, though I can’t remember off the top of my head if it’s in the Bering sea.

They have a detachment out of Bahrain.  It may not be the case anymore, but for a while the USCG conducted boardings instead of the USN.
